“On Center Software is synonymous with estimating and takeo. But this company is more than just a solution provider, rather it is a partner that will help a construction company save both time and money on projects.” —Constructech editors

Estimating and takeoff are core business functions for any construction business—as it directly relates to the profitability of a project. For 30 years, On Center Software has had a rich tradition of serving contractors in the construction industry with point solutions for takeoff and estimating. The company’s lineup of classic products have been around for decades, with Quick Bid launching in 1988 and On-Screen Takeoff being unveiled in 1994. These products have been in many construction companies’ lineup for years, providing improved efficiencies in the office.
In the past couple years, the company has expanded its business, offering more solutions and opportunities for construction companies.
For example, last year, On Center introduced the Contractor Suite, which automates construction workflows from bid, to build, to completion, while handling change orders, addendums, and alternates. The integrated applications are designed to speed up the process and improve accuracy for material takeoff, estimating, and project tracking using On-Screen Takeoff, Quick Bid, and Digital Production Control.
However, more than just providing the solutions needed for construction, it also helps contractors by offering training. On Center Software provides free self-paced training and orientation videos, free instructor-led feature specific Webinars, custom individual sessions, hands-on training, and custom classroom training conducted onsite. The company is a true partner to its customers.
Back in 2015, it became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Roper Technologies, and today it continues to come to market with new solutions that help the industry improve processes. On Center Software has the mission to transform the estimating, takeoff, and labor-tracking experience with solutions that turn bids into profitable projects. And that is exactly what it is doing today—and it has the tools and experience to continue to provide that into the future.
